Edward Said and the religious effects of culture by William D Hart ( )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 1,684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book provides a distinctive account of Edward Said's critique of modern culture by highlighting the religion-secularism distinction on which it is predicated. It refers to religious and secular traditions and to tropes that extend the meaning and reference of religion and secularism in indeterminate ways. It covers Said's heterogeneous corpus--from Joseph Conrad and the Fiction of Autobiography, his first book, to Orientalism, his most influential book, to his recent writings on the Palestinian question. The religion-secularism distinction lies behind Said's cultural criticism, and his notion of intellectual responsibility
Black religion : Malcolm X, Julius Lester, and Jan Willis by William D Hart ( Book )
6 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Black Religion explores the complexity of the black spiritual imagination using the autobiographies of three prominent religious leaders. Looking at Malcolm X's journey from Christianity to Islam, social parasite to "race man," libertine to ascetic, Hart delves into the spiritual dimensions of Malcolm X's life. Hart then examines the affinities between Malcolm's spiritual journey and the journeys of Julius Lester and Jan Willis - none of whom conform to standard expectations of what it means to be a black person and a religious person. Hart argues that the Muslim, Judaic, and Buddhist commitments of these autobiographers show that the black spiritual imagination - religious, political, and personal - cannot be limited to the standard narrative of Black Religion, nor can spirituality be limited to religion."--BOOK JACKET
Afro-eccentricity : beyond the standard narrative of black religion by William D Hart ( Book )
8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Afro-Eccentricity explores three overlapping stories of Black Religion: the Soul, Black Church, and Ancestor Narratives. Hart contends that these narratives dominate most account of Black Religion that, collectively, he calls the Standard Narrative of Black Religion. Against the backdrop of this account, where Afro-Eccentricity is a pun and critical trope, Hart interprets Paule Marshall's Praisesong for the Widow as a battlefield between Afrocentric and Afro-Eccentric versions of the Ancestor Narrative. Then he explores four theorists of Black Religion--Charles H. Long, William R. Jones, Cornel West, and Theophus Smith--whose work pushes against the limitations of the Standard Narrative"--Provided by publisher
